We hope you’re staying safe and healthy out there! We miss you! And we’ll be honest – we’re super disappointed that we don’t get to share some of the amazing things we’ve been working on this March, ranging from our Arts in the Parks partnerships with the city of Tempe to our binational production of Mis Amores Fronterizos, on the Douglas/Agua Prieta border in partnership with Border Arts Corridor and Safos Dance Theatre.
But we also are paying attention to the world around us, and we know that postponing and re-imagining these events this spring is one of the best ways we can show up for our community and help to keep each other safe. So from that perspective, we’re so glad that we can make space for our folks to work remotely, push events to later in the year, curate some digital spaces where we can make art and be together, and work with our community partners to make sure everyone is as safe as possible.
What We Know
We don’t have all the answers to everything (and it’s changing constantly!) but here’s what we know right now:
